Our Story

The Bungalow Pre-school was originally established as a playgroup in 1976, under the ownership of Mrs Tina Tiernan, who retired in 2005. It has been under the current owner Mrs Joanne Philpot since then and continues to maintain a fantastic and well-known reputation within South Tyneside and beyond!

We are a privately run pre-school, Ofsted registered, offering both private and government funded sessions to children aged 2-4 years.

Firstly situated in Westoe Road, it later moved to Sunderland Road and then to our current premises within Cleadon Park Health Centre. The fantastic location enables us to use on-site services, such as the library, community rooms as well as the surrounding local area, where our many outings take place.
